All About Jon Snow Daenerys Sex Scene

In Sunday’s Game of Thrones Finale, we witnessed the epic Jon Snow Daenerys sex scene. Let’s take a look at what it meant for the actors, Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke, and for the Director, Jeremy Podeswa, to shoot the scene.



Jeremy Podeswa’s Take On Jon Snow Daenerys Sex Scene

Says Jeremy Podeswa, “With Jon and Dany’s scene, the important thing for me was that it wouldn’t be prurient in any way, that there’s a very strong undercurrent in that scene. It was shot very, very simply. It’s basically just one steady push in shot to Jon and Dany and then that very important look between them at mid-level. And then a one-shot looking at Jon, then looking down at Dany. It wasn’t about shooting a big lovemaking scene. Once they’re making love, that’s the story. There’s no reason to kind of linger on that.

He continues, “But the real story within the story, was actually what was going on with their eyes and what’s happening — there’s an understanding between them that even though they know in some part of them that they shouldn’t really be doing this, they cannot not do it. There’s some element of destiny that’s brought them together, and they can’t fight it.

Parallels Between Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen Scenes

Jeremy Podeswa also talks about the parallels between Jon Snow Daenerys sex scene and the scenes showing Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen.

The parallels are obvious, with both scenes centered on illicit, romantic meetings. “sIt was exactly as written in terms of the intercutting of those scenes,” said Podeswa. “It was also intercut with the younger Ned Stark and Lyanna telling the secret of Jon’s identity.”

All those things were meant to be interwoven, to give a kind of prismatic view of the history that brought Jon to this point, and Jon and Dany together in this sweep of destiny, in this sweep of history. It was very much written that way. My contribution to that was really making that cinematic and making this feel like a fluid movement through time as we’re seeing this all unfold.”

Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington on shooting Jon Snow Daenerys Sex Scene

Kit Harington, who plays Jon, told Entertainment Weekly about the filming the scene: “Usually you go into a movie and meet (your co-star) for the first time and you develop that chemistry over that time,” Harington said. “But if you’ve known somebody for seven years and shared this incredible journey in your own lives together … we’re both kind of freaking out about it. I would be like, ‘What’s the sexual tension in this scene?’ and she’s like, ‘Stop talking about sexual tension!’ It’s a unique experience to be in as an actor and you know the world is watching.”

Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys, agreed. “Yeah (I would say), ‘Would you just stop? Just give me some sexy eyes, don’t keep talking about sexual chemistry all the time. I love that when we get to the saucy stuff it’s a beautiful acceptance of a wordless … yep,” she said about the scene itself.”

We also saw the famous Jon Snow bum while they were at it.

The Love Story of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen

The love story of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen is an amazing one. It all started in Harrenhal.



How Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen Met?

In 281 AC, Lord Walter Whent organized a grand tourney at Harrenhal. Many noble houses from all over the Seven Kingdoms came to the Riverlands to take part in the tourney. Amongst them were Brandon Stark, and his younger siblings, Eddard aka Ned StarkLyanna Stark and Benjen Stark, heirs to Winterfell in the North.



King Aerys II Targaryen was also part of the festivities. The Crown Prince Rhaegar Targaryen won the final tilt. Rhaegar was supposed to crown the new queen of love and beauty. Instead of crowning his wife, the Dornish princess Elia Martell, Rhaegar rode past her and crowned Lyanna Stark of Winterfell instead. Ned Stark always recalled this moment as “the moment when all smiles died”.

Supposed abduction of Lyanna Stark

After a certain amount of unknown time, Rhaegar Targaryen supposedly abducts Lyanna Stark. At that time, Lyanna Stark is betrothed to Robert Baratheon. Brandon Stark and later on Rickard Stark go with their armies to the Red Keep thinking that Rhaegar took Lyanna to King’s Landing. However, Mad King executes both Brandon and Rickard. Robert is at a loss for losing Lyanna and with the help of Ned Stark, Robert and Ned declare a rebellion against House Targaryen.



Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen Were in Love

Today, in Game of Thrones Season 7 Finale, it was finally revealed that Lyanna was not abducted by Rhaegar. Robert’s rebellion was based on a lie. She and Rhaegar were in love since that tourney. Lyanna eloped with Rhaegar. High Septon Maynard annulled the marriage of Rhaegar Targaryen and Elia Martell and married Lyanna and Rhaegar in Dorne.

Robert kills Rhaegar in the battle of Trident. Lyanna gets pregnant with Rhaegar’s child and gives birth to Aegon Targaryen aka Jon Snow in the Tower of Joy. Ned Stark finds Lyanna all soaked in the blood due to complications from childbirth. Lyanna tells Ned the name of her child and takes a promise from Ned not to tell about Aegon to Robert and everyone else. She knows that Robert will kill that child if he comes to know that Aegon is Rhaegar’s and Lyanna’s child.

Lyanna dies and Ned brings Aegon home as his bastard son Jon Snow. Rhaegar and Lyanna died but their love in the form of Jon Snow aka Aegon Targaryen is still alive today. Jon Snow is unaware of his heritage. We will see how he reacts when he comes to know that he is not a bastard after all but a true heir to the Iron Throne.

Game of Thrones Solved The Mystery Behind The Marriage Of Lyanna Stark

This Sunday’s episode of Game of Thrones scored major points. There wasn’t any war scene or much violence but there were some important revelations. It looks like Game of Thrones gave a big clue to the viewers about the relationship of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. Looks like that Jon Snow is after all the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. 



Mystery solved about Marriage of Lyanna Stark To Rhaegar Targaryen

Samwell Tarly is frustrated from his conversation with the Maesters in a scene earlier in the show. The Maesters are discussing the raven sent by Brandon Stark about Army of the Dead approaching the Wall. But Archmaester tries to dismiss the raven by calling it a ploy by Daenerys to drive armies of the Southerners to the north so that she could conquer Westeros. Archmaester also considers the slight possibility of the raven being true but says that is very unlikely that there is any army of the dead. Sam gets very frustrated about Archmaester not believing him when he says that he has seen the White Walkers. Sam ultimately gets dismissed by the Archmaester.

Sam is seen next in the episode with Gilly.

Gilly is reading some factoids from some High Septon Maynard. She asks Sam, “what does an annulment mean?“. Sam replies, “It’s when a man sets aside his lawful wife“. Gilly keeps on reading,  “Maynard issued an annulment for a Prince named Rhaegar and remarried him to someone else at the same time in a secret ceremony in Dorne“. That’s it, folks! There you have it. So Prince Rhaegar is Rhaegar Targaryen. Maynard issued an annulment for the marriage of Rhaegar Targaryen and Elia Martell. Also, remember the Tower of Joy where Ned Stark found Lyanna Stark. That Tower of Joy is in Dorne. For all this time everyone thinks in Westeros that Lyanna Stark was killed by Rhaegar Targaryen and his army. But now it has become quite clear that Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark got married in Dorne by High Septon Maynard.

Samwell Tarly Misses Some Very Important Information

Sam Tarly completely missed what Gilly told him and instead starts his own rant about all the mundane tasks he has been assigned at Citadel and tells Gilly that he has had enough of it. Oh dear Samwell, you just missed something so important that could make your very dear friend Jon Snow a rightful heir to the Iron Throne. Not only that, this information is critical to the fact that Jon Snow can also ride a dragon. We need more dragon riders. You just listen to your lady, Sam. Listen to what your woman just told you. Pay attention!!!!

Jon Snow Has A Rightful Claim To The Iron Throne

Jon Snow has heard insults throughout his life of being the bastard son of Ned Stark. Despite that, he has risen to a higher purpose, to fight for his people, and most importantly, to fight for the living. Now when he finds out that he is not a bastard but a legitimate child of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark what is he gonna do? Get into the war of Game of Thrones or continue his mission to fight for the living. My guess is the latter.

Jon Snow once told Sansa that he doesn’t enjoy being the King of the North. He never wanted it but his people chose him. Imagine what would people ask him to do if they come to know that he is true ice and fire. He has both Stark and Targaryen blood running through his veins. He is actually the rightful heir to the Iron Throne, much more so than Daenerys Targaryen. Rhaegar Targaryen was the heir after Aerys Targaryen and going by idiotic patriarchal norms of the society, he has a more legitimate shot at the Iron Throne as compared to Daenerys.

How His Lineage Can Help Jon Snow In Fighting The Army Of The Dead 

The song of ice and fire is ultimately not about fighting for the Iron Throne. It’s about the fight between living and dead. It’s about the prince or princess that was promised. Jon Snow has already risen to that occasion. He is off again to the far north with his squad to take a wight back to the South to make the likes of Cersei Lannister believe that White Walkers are real. That the Army of the Dead is real.

His lineage is going to play another important role. Once he comes to know that he has Targaryen blood, that will cement his confidence that he can ride a dragon. He already bonded with Drogon in Eastwatch. Dragons will play a role in the fight of the Long Night.

This bond and the knowledge of Jon Snow being a legitimate child of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen will be crucial for him to ultimately defeat the Night King. Let’s see if we get to see the marriage of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen as a flashback in the upcoming episodes of Game of Thrones
